So last week when I was trying to think of another DIY to add to our Kid’s Spring Style and Geo Floral Easter Party, DIY gold foil Easter eggs came to mind. First though, those will be super simple. Reality, gold foil is a pain to work with. Just wanted to get that out there, you know if you are having those, this is going to be easy thoughts. Also I am sure that I am not the first person to write this post…. and that is another mistake I might add… why did I not google how to do it by someone else? I tried MULTIPLE ways to get the foil to stick and then after like the fifth try, voila! It worked!

I made these eggs specifically for the little DIY Baby Bird Nests that I made a few days before. I thought they would be perfect inside the nests scattered amongst the table. Well, my mom brain forget the nests at home the day of the shoot, but they still looked great scattered within the floral table runner created by Sequel Events.

DIY Gold Foil Easter Eggs

Supplies

  • Hard boiled Eggs (or faux eggs)
  • Gold Foil (mine is from Michael’s with a 40% off coupon, whoop! If you don’t already know this they always have coupons online to save $$)
  • Paint Brush
  • Liquid Clear/White Glue

Directions

  1. Use your paint brush to paint on glue to your eggs. Cover the areas that you want the gold foil to stick to.
  2. Roll the glued on areas of the egg directly onto the gold foil. This will have large pieces and smaller pieces on your egg.
  3. Once the amount of gold foil that you want is on your egg, use your paint brush to manipulate the foil.
  4. You can softly stroke more glue on top of the foil very gently if you want the gold to stay in larger pieces. If you prefer the gold foil to be broken up into smaller pieces poke the foil with the end of your brush to break it apart. More glue will have the foil move around easier.
  5. To fill in spots that didn’t collect foil dab your paintbrush onto the gold foil sheet to collect small pieces to paste on.
  6. Let dry on a drying rack (not a hand towel, trust me on this one).

  • I’ve worn these shoes everyday since surgery, three cheers for not having to bend over to put shoes and socks on. James calls them my “grandma shoes” I call them “awesome”.

  • Six years ago James proposed to me after spending the night together at @vandusengarden Festival of Lights. I can't even believe that six years has gone by since we were sipping Apple Cider and walking the pathways with two year old Ezra by our sides. Now, six years later we enjoyed a night at #vandusenfol again, just with a couple more kids by our side. We bundled up, enjoyed mini donuts and hot chocolate, met up with friends and enjoyed multiple rides on the carousel. It's events like this that make the holidays magical and memorable for kids and adults. Swipe right to see images from our night out last week. #ad

  • Home from the hospital and feeling good (a bit loopy) but overall good. Surgery went well, and I’m home to recover. Thankful for all the messages and prayers today, and for my family for all their support.
